Starting on the north end, this trail is quite easy and pleasant for the first half mile as it winds through aspen and pine forest. It breaks out into semi-desert territory and begins to climb for quite a while - enjoy the wide open views and of the pine and aspen forests covering the Abajos.
Eventually, you head back into forest for a rocky stretch of trail. Though the trail doesn't climb or descend much here, it will take some time to navigate the rocks.
You'll hit the Robertson Pasture Trail
, which you can take to a high saddle point (10,500') between Twin Peaks. This trail soon ends where it ingloriously hits a dirt road.
